I love salads and of course they have to be accompanied by some sort of protein to fill me up. If I do not eat enough protein with my greens, I get hungry really fast.
Much as I love my proteins, if you ask me to eat JUST proteins, I would find it quite difficult. Very recently I came across what is known as the Carnivore Diet. It's not something new, but new to me as I was unaware of such a thing - a diet of just meat.
It piqued my interest when I listened to Joe Rogan's podcast clip on Youtube (or click here for a longer interview).
I was rather intrigued by the story of Mikhaila Peterson who gave an account of her medical condition on a TEDx talk and how going on a diet of only meat helped her.
Although it sounds quite extreme and bizarre, we should not dismiss it as crazy or whatever because there are people who seemed to benefit from this way of eating.
And just because these people thrive on it, it does not mean that we would experience the same results.
We are all different genetically and physiologically, so what works for the goose may not be so for the gander.
Well, you know me. I am always curious when it comes to diet and nutrition. And please, not diet to lose weight and all that crap because I don't (do that kind of) diet anymore. In fact I have thrown out those ideas that we must be of a certain weight and shape to be considered "gorgeous" or whatever. Nobody is going to impose that kind of standards on me. No more!
So. The curious me wanted to experience the carnivore diet just for one day.
I love my steaks! But without the baked potatoes, sauteed mushrooms and other accompaniments, it tasted so one dimensional. And in the absence of veggies and accompaniments to make up the volume, you gotta eat more steak. But it sure keeps you very full.
I prefer this.
I bought ready washed salad greens and for the protein, I got them from Bok Bok Korean Fried Chicken (utilizing my renewed GrabUnlimited discounts)
My favorite flavor is the Soy Garlic.
Last night's dinner.
Of course I had to share some of the roasted duck meat with the tax officer who knows exactly when to stroll into the dining room.
My two fatty bom boms love to hangout at the top of the stairs.
